A Court of Silver Flames; The new face of Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Silver Flames
This new edition is the fifth installment in the popular series, but unlike the books that came before it, it takes the readers on an entirely new journey that embarks from the series’ Young Adult original roots and into the high seas of epic fantasy adventures.
In this book Sarah brings the reader to explore darker themes in a story that features violence, explicit Sex, and adult language.
This change is perhaps a result of a change in the protagonist as the new novel moves away from Feyre and focuses on her sister Nesta who is a lot more complicated in nature.
Fans of the beloved series may be disappointed with the darker themes and the focus on a side character, especially since Feyre and Rhys move to the background with minor plots and limited page time, but if you love the magical world of Court of Thrones and Roses, and enjoy Sarah J. Maas’ stories then you most likely love this book and the adventure it brings with it.
Blurb from the Publisher
Sarah J. Maas’s sexy, richly imagined series continues with the journey of Feyre’s fiery sister, Nesta.
Nesta Archeron has always been prickly-proud, swift to anger, and slow to forgive. And ever since being forced into the Cauldron and becoming High Fae against her will, she’s struggled to find a place for herself within the strange, deadly world she inhabits. Worse, she can’t seem to move past the horrors of the war with Hybern and all she lost in it.
The one person who ignites her temper more than any other is Cassian, the battle-scarred warrior whose position in Rhysand and Feyre’s Night Court keeps him constantly in Nesta’s orbit. But her temper isn’t the only thing Cassian ignites. The fire between them is undeniable, and only burns hotter as they are forced into close quarters with each other.
Meanwhile, the treacherous human queens who returned to the Continent during the last war have forged a dangerous new alliance, threatening the fragile peace that has settled over the realms. And the key to halting them might very well rely on Cassian and Nesta facing their haunting pasts.
Against the sweeping backdrop of a world seared by war and plagued with uncertainty, Nesta and Cassian battle monsters from within and without as they search for acceptance-and healing-in each other’s arms.
